This is what "liberty" looks like.

This was a scene from the Texas senate today, where reactions against the anti-abortion bill have been fierce.

I'd like to hear the pro-life comments about "bald eagles" and "leather wallets."

Your views on the abortion issue aside, can anyone agree with this woman's 1st amendment rights being denied? If the government has given themselves the power to silence anyone who disagrees with them, this is truly the end of American freedom.

She'll probably get a call from Obama. ;)

FWIW, there were hundreds that spoke calmly, courteously and politely.

This is the reason there was a special session called.....belligerent, nasty Liberals.

Liberals speaking of liberty makes me sick.

That's because they actually care about it and you don't.

on some issues, you might be correct, on other issues, you are way off the mark..... let's not pretend this fairyland where liberals or conservatives are paragons of liberty exists, it doesn't..

I would say that neither liberals or conservatives care about liberty, but they love to pick and choose things to give off the illusion that they do.

Whether it was wrong to end her appearance before the committee is questionable in my opinion. Decorum can be imposed. So at what point could a person get up for 2 minutes and just rage obscenities and extreme accusations at other people?

I don't think that woman crossed the line, but she was racing towards it - so I don't see reason for total outrage at her time being concluded given how off her first personal attack was at one committee member. Requiring a sonogram - which I INTENSELY OPPOSE - does NOT cause a baby to be born blind or with STD eye infections - which was her accusation at one committee member. There also was her comment about "coming after you," for which a person making threats can be stopped from making more.

I do think the chair of a formal government session - at some point - can say "we don't have to take this crap from you anymore" to someone just raging hate obscenities or accusations off-the-chart in decorum and relevancy.
